The Las Cruces shopping experience can satisfy those “shop-a-holic” impulses or just meet the needs of the average consumer looking for the basics. We have everything from small boutique specialty shops to the major chains in a mall environment.
Mesilla Valley Mall has the largest selection of stores in southern New Mexico, including Barnes & Noble, Chico’s,
Anna’s Linens, Shoe Pavilion, Sears, JCPenney and Dillards, plus more than 75 other retailers and eateries.
There are sporting goods and hunter supply stores; home building and hardware stores like The Home Depot and Lowe’s; discount department stores such as Kohl’s, Ross and Marshall’s; and discount super centers like Kmart, Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club.
Old Mesilla and its plaza, as well as the Mercado de Mesilla, offer many specialty items from art to jewelry to clothing, furniture and decorative items for the home.
The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market takes place every Wednesday and Saturday morning in downtown Las Cruces. Fresh, locally grown produce, arts and crafts, clothing, baked goods and more are available.
While Las Cruces does have the best and most flavorful chiles and Mexican food on the planet, don’t be concerned that you won’t be able to get a traditional burger or pizza (although most Las Crucens enjoy chile on those as well).
We run the gamut from sandwiches to steaks to sushi and everything in between. Whether you enjoy fast food, buffets or fine dining, you’ll find what you have a taste for in Las Cruces. Local restaurants offer traditional American fare, barbecue, and Italian along with cuisine from the Mediterranean, Middle East, India and the Pacific Rim. Coffee, bakeries, desserts, soups, salads and more are all on the menu.
